Direc­tory macros/latex/contrib/dyntree


The dyntree package is intended for users needing to typeset a dykin tree---a group theoretical construct consisting of cartan coefficients in boxes connected by a series of lines.  Such a diagram is a tool for working out the states and their weights in terms of the fundamental weights and the simple roots.

This package concerns itself with making it easy for the user to generate these objects by allowing the user to specify only the cartan coefficients and the roots to which they connect below---rather than concern themselves with the placement of boxes and lines (which can be quite tedious for even simple Dynkin Tree Diagrams, let alone more complex ones).


To install this package, run dyntree.ins through LaTeX.  This will generate a file called dyntree.sty.  Put this file somewhere where LaTeX will find it---for instance localtexmf/tex/latex/dyntree/  (note that you will need to create the folder dyntree).

dyn­tree – Con­struct Dynkin tree di­a­grams

The pack­age is in­tended for users need­ing to type­set a Dynkin Tree Di­a­gram—a group the­o­ret­i­cal con­struct con­sist­ing of car­tan co­ef­fi­cients in boxes con­nected by a se­ries of lines. Such a di­a­gram is a tool for work­ing out the states and their weights in terms of the fun­da­men­tal weights and the sim­ple roots.

The pack­age makes use of the au­thor's cool­list pack­age.
